Handcuffed driver escapes from police A handcuffed man who gave police the slip last week is back in custody but they are searching for the stolen car he was driving. Police stopped the sil- ver Nissan Cefiro (reg No ECH457) near Paihia on Friday. The driver, a 20-year- old Kaikohe man, was handcuffed but escaped from a patrol car while police were dealing with the other three occupants of the Nissan who later drove off. He was found yester- day without the hand- cuffs and charged. Police are keen to hear from anyone with information about the location of the car which contained car radios and other appliances. Call Kaikohe police on 405-2960 or Crime- stoppers on 0800-555-111.
